Gardening in Denver

Our weather in Denver was warm in January/February (60's and 70's), but in May now we are seeing cool overnight temperatures.   Actually had to turn my heat back on, as the temperatures this morning are hovering around 40 degrees.    Yesterday was gray, gloomy and rainy most of the day.  Don't get me wrong, we need the moisture....but it could be warm when it is raining.....

 

The typical rule of thumb to plant tomatoes, peppers and basil can be Mother's Day.  HOWEVER, last year, I planted my whole garden on Mother's Day, only to dig up some of these plants and put them in the garage a week later when it snowed!    Our springtime weather is SO unpredictable.     

 

Many gardners have made decisions not to plant until Memorial Day or after, and I may have that new thought as well.   Easier than digging plants back up.   Also, maybe some of the hail won't damage the tender plants.

 

I have planted a second batch of peas, and they are popping up.  Bush beans are up, radishes, bib lettuce, cucumbers and planted Rosemary, and seems to have made it through the last couple of nights.    Even some of the carrots are finally popping up.

The lettuce is coming up well.  I planted spinach, but either something was eating it, or it is too chilly overnight for it.

 

Gardening is one of my passions, and sure helps playing in the dirt after some days that seem to never end!
